    Winning ticket!

    Behringer Overdrive Distortion OD300Published on 09/12/14 at 12:27
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Overdrive and / or distortion ..... or a mix of both.
    Clone of the Boss OS-2. I never tried the original .....

    UTILIZATION

    Very basic configuration: gain, tone, volume, and mode, which allows you to err on the side OD or distortion, and mix the two.

    There are sound in minutes.

    SOUND QUALITY

    it sounds ..... it sounds even "excellent" value for money .....

    The overdrive is quite successful, only the distortion is quite "caricature" (too) classic, highly compressed, no personality ..... best is a mixture of both, being more on the side OD (set to 10h about)

    Important thing: TONE is really usable, which is rare ..... often past noon, treble you pierce the eardru…

    Important thing: TONE is really usable, which is rare ..... often past noon, treble you pierce the eardrums, not there ..... unless the knob is turned fully, and again.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've tried dozens of distortion and overdrive ...... at all prices (except very expensive)

    What at first think of this little pedal plastoc, of antiquated appearance, little known, and more than one brand capable of the best and the worst?

    We have to start, and try it (along with considering the price, you risk not much)
    And then, Me, I stayed on my ass!
    The sound is very fat, with lots of body, lots of sustain ..... I did not expect such a sense of power.
    The big power chords ring of hell, the only notes stand out very well, that blame him? not bad breath, but I've seen much worse.

    For cons, the effect still sounds a bit "dirty" (I did say some) ..... for a little crunch, it will not top ..... but for garage rock, punk, Grunge, good old hard rock, it's perfect!

    In fact this pedal is perfect anywhere, but "good" everywhere ..... versatility .... I put him 10 of 10 for playing against Nirvana!

    Frankly, for 20 euros ..... this is like that, sometimes cheap tools do the job and do it very well! this is one of those "happy accidents" that happen from time to time, from trying a lot of stuff, not to rely on price or brand ....

    Q / P: 10/10

    I would do without hesitation that choice, and I would try out the BOSS to see .....

    Overall Rating: 8/10

    Same thing as the OD100

    Behringer Overdrive Distortion OD300Published on 06/21/11 at 20:24
    This is, again, just a ripoff of the Boss OD-2. It contains both overdrive and distortion, and you can combine the two different sounds with a single knob. There's a level, tone, color and drive knob.

    UTILIZATION

    Unlike the Boss counterparts, I'm not exactly sure how well these will stand up to touring. Where as the Boss products are known to be able to survive a nuclear holocaust, this pedal is still new. The casing itself isn't too bad, and it seems like it could take some abuse without much of an issue. It's ridiculously easy to set up, and you shouldn't even need to read the manual as to how to run this thing. That said, I have never read the actual manual, so I can't comme…

That said, I have never read the actual manual, so I can't comment as to how well it's written.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The pedal itself is interesting in that it combines both overdrive and distortion circuits via a unique "color" knob. The color knob allows you to dial in the amount of overdrive or distortion you're looking for, and this is separate from the gain control. The sound is not too bad. It can boost an amp nicely, but I find that each setting is a compromise. The pedal can be a bit boxy sounding in stock form, and that's one of the biggest problems I have with it. When it's on, it has that kind of pedal sound and feel. Some might like it, but I never could jive with it enough to add it to my rig.


    OVERALL OPINION

    This is really just the same thing as the OD100. I'm not sure why the OD100 was discontinued, but maybe it had to do with reliability or something like that. If you're a fan of the Boss OD-2 pedal, you'll probably like this pedal. The build quality on these can be a bit shoddy, but considering what you get for the price, it's not too bad. It's worth at least checking out for the unique color knob.
